Reviewed 7 July 2014

I suppose it's because we went up in June, in very good weather. The Funicular up was busy, the restaurant was busy, the terrace tables were busy and the gantry out to view both lakes and Interlaken was well busy, complete with a large painted cow. Having said all that, I managed to get a decent local beer, and enough photographs to keep me happy. Worth the trip.

A hundred years ago, this would have been the most exciting thing to do in the country. You travel up seemingly vertical slopes and are pulled up the slope only by another train car going down.

Fast forward to today with iPhones, paragliding and parachuting and the trip seems quaint. With your visitor card, the ride is half price. The views are stunning. You could also hike 1.5 hrs up and then down if you please. I must say that the ice cold beer and I am talking American or Thailand ice cold, was quite crisp and refreshing. It makes you wonder why everybody does not serve beer so cold... But I digress.

They have a new viewing platform that juts out from the side of the mountain which is quite nice.

The trip by train takes less than 8 min and is quite enjoyable. Try to get in line early for a seat. We stood for the trip down and that was a little disconcerting. The train leaves at 10 and 40 after every hour. The location is near the Ost Bahnhof.

We were quite glad that we took the trip. Other mountain views have a much longer travel time. This one was quite quick. We would go back.

You need a clear day to benefit from the views at the top. Not too expensive.The funicular ride to the top was quick but half hour waiting time between each one

We would certainly recommend this short trip to anyone with limited time in Interlaken, but in our ten day visit this was our least memorable outing. At full fare it is expensive although there are ways of halving the cost. It is hard to criticise the funicular, the view or the food as a one-off, but it is worth venturing further afield to get really spectacular views in this lovely region.

This is beautiful the ride to the top takes 8 and a half minutes so not to bad for those that do not like heights there are seats facing both up the mountain and down if you have travel passes then the harder kulm is covered on these . A three minute walk from the entrance at the interlaken end you will find a pen holding a number of goats that you can go in and see. Once at the top there is a few minutes walk to the restaurant which serves a variety of food my mum and I had two coke lights which cost us about 8.80 chf . There is a platform near the restaurant that edges out over the mountain with a glass panel that allows you see down. There are plenty of seats near the top including deck chairs and swinging seats. You will also find a little cabin selling postcards about 1chf, magnets at about 7chf and cuddly dogs. The views from the top are simply breath taking and I recommend it to anyone we had friends who had a romantic dinner at the top one night to watch the sunset .
